There is acoustic software that can calculate rate but there is an easier way to calculate rate. Read a passage for 1-2 minutes. Find a stable/representative 15 seconds and then count the number of syllables and multiply by 4. That will give you the number of syllables/minute and you can compare over time.
Have you tried increasing loudness to normal loudness levels? That technique has been shown to reduce rate as well.
